My favourites from that era would be all the good proto-Ghibli stuff Miyazaki and Takahata had their hands in. Toei movies, Lupin III, WMT, Conan, Gauche and Nausicaa, and so on. I think that's the best of early anime, never been a Dezaki or Mushi Pro fan.

Speed Racer

It has more death per episode than Game of Thrones. It has mystery. It has a protagonist with a clear and attainable goal. It has a love triangle between the protagonist, the strong and independent woman, and the obviously gay mechanic. And the creators were so progressive that they got around the law that prohibited the depiction of black characters in cartoons by giving the Racer family a pet chimp that, by all means and purposes, was the equal to its owners.

yeah no thanks. That shit puts me to sleep. Wish I could understand the appeal of giant robotic mech suits. Just find it incredibly boring. I can see how children may like it but as an adult, the concept is dumb and not that interesting. A lot of people say it's the story of the characters outside of the mechs but then I ask why not watch an anime that has interesting characters and stories with no mechs? Never got an answer.

It was weird how at first the show was about how Marie Antoinette had trouble adjusting to her life in Versailles and there were episodes where she was basically the main character, but then in the later half she is basically forgotten until the very last episodes.

Well, I was a kid when I watched this.
To be fair, I can't fully explain why i cherish this series so much. Macross/Robotech was already airing and we had also Mazinger and other mech series going on, but I loved this one above them all.

Rose of Versailles is my favourite pre '85 show by far. Oscar is one of the most nuanced characters in anime, and I find her genuinely inspiring.

In terms of films, I love Angel's Egg for the visuals and the abstract story telling, but I'd probably rate Night on the Galactic railroad as my favourite movie from that era. I really should read the book one day, but I feel that a Japanese to English translation would probably suck all the life out the original prose.
>>
>>152454118
Yamato. Matsumoto had idea's that Harlock would tie in as a sequel to Yamato, that never materialised, but in the Leijiverse, it makes more sense to watch Yamato as a near future show, and Harlock as a far future show.
>>
>>152459927
So much would have changed in history if Oscar was real and Marie Antoniette had just accepted her gay feelings for her.

>Nausicaa
Solid, but it feels a bit too prototype for me to really love like Ghibli's later works. Manga's amazing though.
>Gunbuster
Love it. Diebuster sucks.
>Wings of Honneamise
Great animation but this movie's all over the fucking place desu. Also dat casual dismissal of attempted rape.

No love for the wmt series?

I've just finished 3,000 leagues in search of mother and it was amazing.

Made me realize that between the founders of ghibli, Miyazaki might be the most creative, but Takahata is the better director of the two.
>>
>>152470675
I think they're too different stylistically to really compare like that. They equally occupy the highest tier of anime director in my books. Miyazaki actually did the layouts and scene design for all of Takahata's WMT shows, too.
>>
>>152470675
I've been rewatching the ghibli films and so far I think I like Takahata's a lot more, which definitely wasn't the case when I was younger. I think Takahata is better at making believable characters. his stories aren't all that dramatic so he kinda needs the characters to be good to carry his films where as with miyazaki you have so much fantastic stuff going on that the characters kinda take a backseat to the creative imagery.

Not really. Going to the planet in the Andromeda galaxy where they give away mechanical bodies away for free is set as a goal early in the story, so the fact that Tetsurou and Maetel eventually arrive at that planet is not much of a spoiler. However, what a "mechanical body" actually means and what Tetsurou ends up doing as a result is different in each version.
